Can we use plastic trash bags for leaves and grass?
No. City ordinance states that yard waste can only be collected in paper bags or reusable cans. Plastic bags have been removed from the yard waste program as they are a contaminate in the composting program. We ask that anyone using the yard waste program use 30 gallon compostable paper yard waste bags or a trash can marked with the words "yard waste". Thirty gallon paper yard waste bags can be purchased at retail outlets in Fayetteville. Tree limbs and brush still have to be bundled separate from the leaves and grass.
